    Can't say I've seen too many E500 Coupe's on my travels.

    This one has the later 4.7ltr V8, low mileage and nice colour / interior - no comment on the price as I've no idea on what the going rate is. No MOT since March so they might do a deal* :)

    That has been for sale for yonks , if it's the one on AT I saw when I looked for a friend 6 or more months ago (can't be many that colour)

    Check when it was last taxed (a clue) and bargain hard if interested.....

    Think it's at a "premium" because of the 4.7 rather than 5.5 ltr engine (or at least that's what they'll be saying...):rolleyes:

    more than likely but the fact of the matter is at that price bracket a CL500 would be my choice , yes its a lovely looking car but there are 100's of E class coupes out there . . . . . . .

    Probably only the 4 tail pipes
    the difference, visually that is.
    BUT the engine! Now that's a different matter.

    Mine has 2 rectangular tailpipes.
    What I like about it is that it doesn't stand out in a crowd & mine is debadged.
    Before I retired I worked away from home & stayed in small hotels or B & B's,parking on the street a lot of the time so the anonymity was welcome.
    The only clue that it is a 5.5L,apart from the noise,is in the reg plate.

    Hi, I have the next generation of this blue car. Mine is the 125 year anniversary version in Palladium with the second generation MMI (command) and dash screens, panoramic roof and a few option boxes ticked. You cannot compare these coupes to the 5.5 naturally aspirated - this is the 4.7 Twin Turbo V8 with 408hp and 600Nm of torque. They are monstrous to drive. 0-62mph in around 4.6 seconds, and tyre selection is key on these as they tend to break traction pretty easily.

    I need to correct bembo449 as although there may be hundreds of E coupes, in the E500 with the 4.7 TT V8 engine - only 11 were made, with only 9 left in the UK (according to howmanyleft.co.uk) and the engine was used just prior to the S63 coupes as a Mercedes run-out variant of the E500 C207 just before the next coupe facelifts which only ever came out with an E400 version.

    I'm putting a few pics of my beast up. I'd say the value of these sits between £16k and £22k depending on which edition you can get your hands on. It's definitely a 911 beater and still practical to put two adults into the back seats - as well as two suitcases in the boot.

    Nice, the only way I can see it beating a 911 though is in lower purchase price :rolleyes:

    I did the switch from a 911 to this coupe. You can get 2 adults into the back, so it beats the 911 - its also quicker - maybe not against a Turbo or GT series...

    I used to get 2 x 6’2” adults in the back of a 911 :D I found you always could get willing passengers :p. There’s not a 2 wheel drive Mercedes built that can put the power down like a 911, nor go round the corners...

    re: handling, power down and general vibe of lifting off and using weight as a weapon, yep, I agree, you are bang on... although when I squeezed adults in the back, I was about 3mm away from my chin being on the steering wheel! Still, it might be my age, but I'm finding the change a lot easier to live with - and the extra funds from that change went into another classic restoration - if I tried doing it without this fund redirection, the mrs would explode!
